Finally, guests will take in a private April afternoon and evening in Il Borro Villa and Village, a meticulously preserved 13th century Tuscan estate, where they can tour the estate’s wine cellar and view its classic fine art collection before enjoying a local, farm-to-table dinner over a Renaissance-themed performance in the Villa’s amphitheater.
